Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip.
That started from this tropic port, aboard this tiny ship.
The mate was a mighty sailing man, the skipper brave and sure.
Five passengers set sail that day, for a three hour tour, a three hour tour.
The weather started getting rough, the tiny ship was tossed.
If not for the courage of the fearless crew, the Minnow would be lost, the Minnow would be lost.
The ship took ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle,
with Gilligan, the skipper too, The millionaire, and his wife,
The movie star,The professor, and MaryAnn, here on Gilligan’s Isle.
So this is the tale of our castaways, they’re here for a long, long time.
They’ll have to make the best of things, it’s an uphill climb.
The first mate, and his skipper too, will do their very best to make the others comfortable in this tropic island nest.
No Phones, No lights, No Motorcars, Not a single luxury.
Like Robinson Crusoe It’s primitive as can be.
So join us here each week, my friend, you’re sure to get a smile,
from seven stranded castaways, Here on Gilligan’s Isle!
